The annual Texas Music Festival rocked the West Texas Canyon Amphitheatre on Friday night. All proceeds from the event benefit the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes raises money for education and research to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality.
A Lubbock family knows first-hand how important this organization is. Hallie Brown was born six weeks premature, at only five pounds. Today she is perfectly healthy, but the struggle the Brown family had with their pregnancy led them to support the March of Dimes. "We had a lot of help getting thru this," said Cheryl Brown. "I would like to see the March of Dimes succeed in finding the causes and learn more about it to be about it to be able to prevent some of the problems."
Last year the concert raised $5,500 for the March of Dimes, and they're hoping to raise even more this year.
